Looking good Frank, slightly off topic but what length lines do you use on the Hyperlink ?

So you did not watch all the way to the end... ;)
I know, videos these days should be wayyyy shorter. Short as my lines.
Cheers,
Frank

Title says 7m lines.
Off topic- I assume the 12-9 Hyperlink works good on 20 m lines too?

Conditions at flag beach today were challenging, southwest winds,15-30 knts and choppy, the clues were there that it was a bad foil day,
No foilers out!
On the beach round the bay 5 km south was a very good foiler on a 4 mtr. Wave riding like a pro.
So my new Ozone Reo 6mtr was pulled from the bag, 101 mast, 548 and 325 combo,
It was flipping awful out on the water, 2 kites got wrapped, multiple Ttips were adrift without owners, idiots were aiming straight at me with fear in thier eyes, and I was not in control, being thrown around like a rag doll.
Came in after a mad half hour, I checked my heart beat on my watch and was shocked to see it had been in the 180bpm for 20% of my session, I only max out at 157bpm in the gym.
After a bit of thought and after Calming down, I changed to a W550 front wing and moved my footstraps forward by one hole, set the kite lines on the slow setting,and set off again, same stupid conditions but more determination that I could get some smiles from the conditions,
Well, the 550 wing with the 325 stab on the 101 mast was so smooth, board was now level and I could crank upwind with a smile, result!
Later on in the restaurant we met up with some locals we know and one of them said they would not go out as the Hammerhead sharks were active,
Lame excuse as loads were being thrown off thier kit in the mad gusts and none were eaten.
Were you there Tom Tom?

I tested these two sizes with 10-25m, it is about personal preferences.

I hope to get out on my 9mtr hyperlink over the next week here in Fuerterventura, I won't be getting out on my Fone 15mtr Breeze however!
Not because it's too windy, but because it's been nicked, stolen, removed from my kit list without permission, removed from my kit bag whilst in storage.
My own fault, too trusting, the warning signs were there, but too late for me, Bugger!
That will teach me.☹️

I had a bad feeling from the petty thieving on the beach last time, but this is on another level, I will be speaking to the owner today as he was off yesterday,
They took an old 8mtr bandit bag as well as the original bag that I left at home so the expensive new 15 MTR Breeze would be disguised.
I will post more when I tell them about the theft later,they don't know as yet.

Hi,

Was this here on Fuerte? Or was it taken in the UK?

I have not spoken to the site owner yet as he is away until Thursday or Friday, police will be involved after I have spoken to him.
